St Mark's Hospital Church
Welcome to St Mark's Hospital Church.
Although we are situated within the grounds of St Mark's Hospital, everyone is welcome to join us for services.
Our vicar, David Short, writes:
" In the light of the social distancing measures introduced recently, our usual pattern of Sunday services and mid-week activities is on hold. We are doing this to respond positively to the situation we are facing, and with particular care to protect the most vulnerable members of society.
Whilst there will be significant challenges in the months ahead – we can be confident in the steadfast love of our Heavenly Father.
Whilst our regular Sunday services have been put on hold, we are streaming online services so that we can continue to worship, receive encouragement from God’s word, and pray for the needs of the world. Though we will not meet together, we will continue to worship our risen Lord.
I want to stress that the church of Jesus Christ is not hunkering down, it is creatively responding to the challenge of this next season. Ministries are not ceasing, they are shifting their focus to meet the changing needs around us.
With my love and prayers for you, and your loved ones, "
